I have a problem with print quality of my Brother printer mFC-6490CW, I have run the ink management utility, the black, yellow and magenta printed to about 95% just one dotted line missing on the black,...

Well, this is a common problem with people who purchase Brother printers, but do not always use Brother Ink Cartridges. Brother has a cleaning agent in the print cartridge and the compatibles do not.

"If you have a lack of one (or more) color do the following:

Make sure all carts are full, placed well and are secured. Insert a new ORIGINAL BROTHER CART for the one that shows no color.

Press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up quick after another. machine will switch into maintenance mode and all lights will flash. Press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk-copy. machine will initialize the carts and refresh ink within tubes and print head. After that it does some power cleaning. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk-copy. machine will run a power purge. when finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. do run a quality test print.

This should clean the lines out and clear up your issue.

Black line across the top of every print on bh c250

Hi first do a cmyk test chart of each color if it happens when you do black copies then check the black imaging unit as it is not being cleaned and will give you black lines replace black drum unit
if it is on color copies black copies then the other thing to look at is the transfer belt unit and you may need to change the transfer belt
do the CMYK and you should get each color fully covered on each page see if there is any lines on the sheets in the same area you are getting the lines if so replace that color drum

3 thin black lines on copy

Do the black lines show up when you use the adf or if you make a copy from the copyboard glass. If the lines only show with the adf > there is a small **** of glass on the left side of the copy board glass > I would clean the slip glass with windex or a damp cloth..... Good Luck

Blue dotted line of right side of paper

Sounds like the cyan photoconductor unit needs to be replaced. Usually what ever the color dot is that photoconductor has a pinhole in it and the only to get rid of it is to replace it.

Canon printing in streaks

first check the nozzle (bottom of cartridge). if u dont see black spots around the nozzle line (many nozzle that form straight line, black long straight line, color, 3 short line), or a view of burnt, u can continue below.

blow the air hole till it drop the ink. then clean it with water. but note, dont wipe the nozzle, let them wet. u must wipe the contact with dry tissue before inserting it back.

otherwise, u must replace ur cartridge :D
